Course Outline:

Among the least appreciated, and sometimes surprising, aspects of the common law of contract in Hong Kong are the rules and principles governing false or inaccurate pre-contractual statements.  Misrepresentations are often made in the course of negotiating a contract, and can result in rescission of the entire contract and/or a claim for statutory or common law damages by the representee.

This course will examine: the common law principles by which misrepresentations may be identified, how misrepresentations may be distinguished from other statements or communications such as contractual terms or mere puffs, and statutory and common law remedies for fraudulent, negligent and innocent misrepresentation.

This course will cover the followings:

  • Introduction to Misrepresentation
  • False statements of fact - opinion, forecast and future intentions
  • Misrepresentation by conduct
  • Misrepresentation by silence
  • Representee’s failure to verify
  • Multiple inducements to conclude contract
  • Rescission
  • Common law damages
  • Misrepresentation Ordinance (Cap.284)
